5.3. The DEVICES.HLP file

All physical devices that the user might need to access by name should be documented in the file dev$devices.hlp. Typing

cl> help devices
or just
cl> devices
in the CL will format and output the contents of this file. It is the IRAF name of the device, as given in files such as termcap, graphcap, and tapecap, which should appear in this help file.
